On tap at The Muddy Pig during the IIIrd annual Festival of Hops. The serving glass and size might have affected the Appearance negatively.
Deep amber, slightly hazy, with a moderate off white head, poor head retention and some lacing.
Strong notes of lemon rind, herbs, and pine with little sweetness, if at all. Very dank!
Hopsickle delivers the assault I had been craving for a while now: strong flavorful bitterness with notes of citrus peel - fresh, herbal, and unadulterated. While the malt "backbone" is fine, there was no perceptible maltiness in the taste. A long and bitter finish that is not really dry, but the sweetness is completely obliterated by the bitter aftertaste. Hopsickle remains among the most bitter beers I have ever had.
Medium bodied, appropriately crisp, and clean finishing, the mouthfeel of this beer is spot on.
I would want to drink more of it but the ABV is on the higher side, so it can't be perfect. Regardless, it's a must have for hop lovers! It's a shame that the bottles are not dated otherwise I would be buying a whole lot of it.

Sample at Max's on 7/23/14 (from notes)
A: Lacing and copper colored.
S: Hops, all day.
T: Bitter as hell. Along with pine, that is the taste. I don't usually get this even with some of the other big IPAs out there.
M: Smooth with light carbonation.
O: Unbalanced but hoppy and bitter as hell.
